Quoting: Skully
Quoting: XpanderUK is Running now.

first post updated. Congratulations to Skully for winning in Germany :)

Thanks. Looks like you would easy have beat me, if you didn't have some bad luck lol.
I had a very clean run. Germany is my best location. So I have a feeling I wont be doing so well in future.
Wish I joined the league earlier so I could have done all the events. Also I missed the 70's championship :(

Do not worry, we will go back to 70s cars if people are interested in those events. Next is going to be Group B, then Group A and then 70s again i think.

Started off pretty well in Wales, with the first stage feeling like one of my better runs. Naturally I followed that up with a reset in the second stage. Other stages were more or less ok, except one that I was too careful (slow) in, I think it was the night stage. Had a totally unnecessary reset in the last stage as well, which the current table tells me cost me at least one place to Edmene. Typical XD

UK done. Last stage was terrible, i had incredible speed but errors ruined everything :)
Also i was fighting with my wheel this time. For some weird reason every time i alt+tabbed to type down what happened on the stage, after returning to the game my wheel was off center, so i had to restart the game several times.

Anyway here's how i did:
S1: spin after watersplash;
S2: clean
S3: crash into the fences with reverse needed;
S4: clean mostly (wheel wasn't centered - lots of small errors)
S5: clean
S6: clean
S7: terrible stage - spin, crash into trees 2 times, both times reverse needed to get out of the ditch, puncture on the last sector.

I think this was the best I've ever driven in Wales. That said:

3rd: one penalty
5th: otherwise a great run, but lost a lot of time trying to drive out of a ditch... should have recovered
7th: two barrel rolls ending in a ditch, had to recover the car once

Thanks for another fun season! Nice to see more participants this time.

I had a lot of mishaps. Had to replace a tyre for 1:30 penalty after losing nearly as much trying to keep going on the rim.
I think my xbox controller is limiting how well I can do. Going to borrow my friends wheel and see if I can improve.

Sure a good wheel would give you an edge, but according to the league leaderboard, of the drivers in the current event only Xpander has one. That said, and to repeat what I've said many times before, I'd really love a wheel. It might not affect my performance that much, but damn if it wouldn't be fun.
